With the magic of editing and a lot of hard work, YouTuber baracksdubs has sparked a craze of creating covers of famous songs sung by unlikely people. With pairings that range from Barack Obama singing Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ to Donald Trump singing DJ Khaled’s ‘All I Do Is Win,’ each of the YouTuber’s treatments is the epitome of the viral video. And it seems like the influence has spread to involve the movies.
In a glorious supercut, YouTuber Jukka-Pekka Bohm has matched dialogue from more than 100 movies — from classics like “Back to the Future” and “Scarface” to recent fanfares in the lines of “The Avengers” and “Frozen” — with the lyrics of Wu-Tang Clan’s ‘Aint Nuthing ta F’ Wit.’ The treatment proves more than satisfying, still offering the jams of the song along with the humor of seeing our favorite characters say such out of place, but also sometimes spot on things. Bohm even goes so far as to add a bit of cinematic flair, complimenting the breaks between lyrics with longer clips that fit — whether that be a cool Billy Murray sipping coffee in “Coffee and Cigarettes” or a cheeky Seth Rogen joking around in “Funny People.” The new connotation between these characters and this song might be something we won’t be able to unsee.
While we all laugh at the likes of Kumar from “Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle” fitting so well into the cut, the video is also an incredible tribute to not just decades of classics, but also to the fun that those movies have offered.
Check out the supercut above.
